Quick pass over the target with a B&W version. If I'd have done anything different, I'd have tried a higher lighting ratio, maybe just using a window on one side. Tempting to shoot this high key but tricky. The pattern on the cloth works well, drives the eye to the pup and and defines the soft surface, a dog nestled down on a cushion.

Interesting - I did consider a black and white version. You have gone for quite a contrasty look, which I quite like despite some loss of fine detail. I've tried to recreate what you have done by adjusting the orange level, contrast and blacks in lightroom. How did you do it?
